Baklava II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
Good classic recipe. Assume you will need ludicrous amounts of butter so brushing can be fast, easy and not interrupted by scrambling to melt bore in the middle. Also, a whole lemon worth of fine zest and a splash of almond extract in the honey syrup is good. I think this recipe underestimates the time for simmering, as you need to stir constantly until it thickens or your arm falls off - (its worth it). Finally, stay with me this sounds odd but trust me here: instead of just melted butter, if you use about one part high quality extra virgin olive oil for every for parts butter it lends just a little Mediterranean savory kick to enhance the pistachios.
